Ian McIntosh to remain selector

2013-12-07 00:00

CAPE TOWN — The South African Rugby Union (Saru) has extended Ian McIntosh’s tenure as Springbok selector until the end of the 2015 season.

According to Die Burger’s website, this was done at a Saru executive committee meeting held in Cape Town on Thursday.

The Springbok selection committee consists of McIntosh, Peter Jooste (convenor) and Bok coach Heyneke Meyer.

McIntosh, who coached the Sharks to their first Currie Cup title in 1990, was recently honoured with the International Rugby Board’s (IRB) Vernon Pugh Award for Distinguished Service, recognising his achievement in changing the face of rugby in South Africa.

The IRB noted that McIntosh had been an inspiration to all those who crossed his path in a 50-year involvement and that he remained as passionate about rugby as when he first started out.
